UYL – Ready for Sourdough September?

Sourdough September is when the Real Bread Campaign goes on a mission to help everyone discover that: life’s sweeter with sourdough!

The Campaign is encouraging Real Bread bakers everywhere to organise their own local events and activities from 1-30 September, to help share sourdough secrets and demystify the delicious delights of the oldest way of raising a loaf. Across thirty days of sharing food, facts and fun, Real Bread bakeries, baking schools, mills and food festivals around the UK and beyond will be running sourdough classes, tastings, feasts and more to help everyone experience and enjoy the power of sourdough.

Have a go at making your own sourdough bread . . .

First, you will need to create a sourdough starter,  which is not difficult but requires a little patience and a kilner jar. So to hit the ground running in September, you might want to start your starter early . . .



  • Strong White Flour
  • warm water
  • 1 litre kilner jar required


Sourdough Starter

Once established you can share your sourdough mix with family and friends.
